have won. >>> house speaker john boehner spoke by phone tuesday exchanging new fiscal cliff proposals. the president gave boehner a revised offer on monday and he went down a couple of hundred billion from 1.6 trillion to 1.4 trillion over ten years. in an exclusive interview with barbara walters, of "abc news," president obama says he still expects a deal before the end of the year. >> remain optimistic there are enough people of good will in this country families will be much better off when we get this done. the most important thing is make sure middle class taxes don't go up on january first and i'm pretty sure republicans would not hold middle class tax cuts hostage to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> prediction, are you going to be able to raise taxes yes or no? >> taxes will go up one way or another. the key is to make sure taxes go up on high end individuals, like you and me, barbara, we can afford it. >> you can see the rest of that interview on abc's 20/20 this friday. hopefully, you will hear barbara walters come pellingly say will be able to cut spending? d
the past few days, regardless of the news, which hasn't really improved on the fiscal cliff definitely that is a solid dollar betts in the direction that say that people think is going to resolve in a positive way. >> and positive is pre-january 1st or positive at this point is january 15th? >> good point. i would say it's probably the 13th or 15th of january, not tend of the year, and that's where the focus comes back to the fed tomorrow. unlike before, and probably for political reasons, the fed has been a little bit tight lipped about the details of what they would do. so what buckets they buy in, would they mess around, dudley had a big concept, they might want to mess around with mortgages again. that kind of information would be probably more leaked out to the marketplace by now if it wasn't for the fiscal situation. so there's quite a bit of uncertainty and the fed will definitely have -- it will make for a really exciting process tomorrow. >> it's exciting presser? have they ever done an exciting presser? >> this is his chance to really prove it, i think. yeah. and the surprisi
in the new part of the new year, there's not a solution early that deals not only with the fiscal cliff but also the fiscal abyss, that he expect this is to start affecting hiring plans for 2014, as well. is that a serious concern for your manufacturing base at this point? >> i think it is a very serious concern. we did a survey, a study a couple months ago called fiscal shock. and it showed that we've already seen a 0.6% contraction in the economy because of manufacturers concerns about the fiscal cliff that's coming up. and the report also showed that if we go over the cliff, meaning if we just go over it in the first few days of next year, that we could have a 13% cumulative contraction in the gdp between now and 2015. and 6 million jobs lost. now, a lot of those will come from small and medium sized manufacturers who just aren't willing to take the risk, but i think you're talking to doug in a little bit and larger companies like caterpillar and doug is the incoming chair of the national association of manufacturers, companies like caterpillar rely on those supply chains. so they wa
on in town. in washington news, both parties hinting at renewed talks on the fiscal cliff. the acknowledgement of open lines of communication passed for encouraging news. a new survey finds more than 60% of leading investment professionals predict a shorp stock decline in the market if the government fails to come up with a deal. in this case defined as a more than 10% drop in the dow. 56% surveyed foresee a deal to avoid the cliff by year end, 44% predict failure in the ongoing negotiations. as for corporate america, through yesterday's close, there have been # 70 announcements of special dividends. these special difference deebds are valueded a more than $30.1 billion. among the latest names, mcgraw hill will pay a special dividends of $2.50 a share before year end. and drop its previously announced plan to buy back up to $200 million more of stock this year. >> everybody's paid their dividends this year, so they won't be paying them next year. >> this is a major issue. what's going to happen is -- we have two great economists onset. but that money will get annualized, s
of the fiscal cliff and how much it plays into the news media. at this point maybe that's a sign for washington, guys, hurry up and get something done, because this really is starting to matter. >> can't emergency until maybe just recently did anyone really said, wow, am i going to get junior this gift? >> everything we talked about is how consumers were still hanging in. but it's two-thirds of the economy. >> a couple weeks ago, consumers and businesses alike weren't really investing. they were only spending exactly what they had to to sort of get themselves to the end of the year and that any longer-term investment really wasn't happening. they were putting it on hold. >> where are you on the aussie discharge? >> oh, no. >> the ones who called up and crank called -- >> well, i do believe that, you know, they had to think that they weren't going to get through. i made a prank call in my day and most of the time they find you out or hang up on you right away. >> initially there was the piling on, and it's the twitter sphere and really, it's very sad that this individual -- >> no one could have
